Wow [20 Nov 2011|12:17am]
Oh my gosh! Reading this thing is so embarrassing! I was such a whiner in high school and college. Just to let everyone know, I'm a big girl now with a job, a brand new house with Primo and our pup, Ringo. Life is great and I'm no longer emo and whiny....except when I whine about the food I can't eat on my diet...or when I whine about how bad the latest Twilight movie was.

What I thought was important, I've come to find isn't. What I now know is important, is what I never thought was. My heart is full. Full of emotions of all kinds. I'm alive.

Couldn't be happier to say that.

I have people in my life that are so extraordinary. My parents are the hardest working people I know. My sister and her boyfriend are the most driven people I know. My best friend is the nicest person I know. My boyfriend is the most genuine, funniest person I know. My coworkers are the smartest, most interesting people I know.

When you're surrounded by GOOD people, you feel better about the things that shine in your own personality. I'm humbled by these people, yet, they make me more confident about my own strengths. We all bring something different to the table when we're true to ourselves.

[ mood | hopeful ]

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008.

For the rest of our lives, we will always remember this moment. When our grandchildren are studying out of their history books, we will be able to tell them where we were when America broke the greatest glass ceiling of all, when America elected President Barack Obama.

That fateful night, I just couldn't help but cry from tears of joy and relief. For the first time, politics looked hopeful instead of cynical. For the first time, in a long while, America no longer was fearful but hopeful. For the first time, I believed that I could do anything possible. Anything at all. Barack Obama brought together a nation of the silent, and brought together the REAL AMERICA. An America of all different shapes, sizes, colors, genders, religions, and backgrounds.

Not only is Barack Obama a visionary leader, but he and his family are people we should all look up to. The way they have handled moments of heat in the campaign, the way Barack and Michelle have steadily been involved with their daughters' lives, and the unyielding faith and love they have shown each other is what a real family looks like. Smart and educated, I can't imagine what young women those two will raise.

The one thing I did not like about this election is the hate that was bred from opposing viewpoints. I can't understand why anyone would wish harm and hate upon another human being, especially one as giving, selfless and as inspiring as Barack and Michelle. Against all odds they have turned out to be smart amazing people. I can finally look at our president and say, "Wow, I look up to him." I can look at our first lady and say, "Wow, what a smart and passionate woman." I can finally say, anything is possible. I can finally say that I live in a country where truly, we can overcome anything.

"And to all those who have wondered if America’s beacon still burns as bright – tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from our the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity, and unyielding hope.

For that is the true genius of America – that America can change. Our union can be perfected. And what we have already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow." - President-Elect Barack Obama!

don't kid yourself
and don't fool yourself
this love's too good to last
and i'm too old to dream

don't grow up too fast
and don't embrace the past
this life's too good to last
and i'm too young to care

don't kid yourself
and don't fool yourself
this life could be the last
and we're too young to see

clair de lune [28 Aug 2008|09:44pm]
obsessed with this piece right now. it was mentioned in twilight, as well, so yes i may be being a bit obsessive but how can you not? this song is beautiful and was featured in a scene of fantasia that later got cut from the final production...i thought i'd share. it's pretty cool if its your sort of thing.

time to get back in touch with myself... [08 Aug 2008|01:51am]
Sorry to anybody who had to read my journal last school year. All it was, was a big pile of shit and complaints! I've realized that if I'm going to be back in Peoria, on my own, I need to start being the person I love! I've started to get back into reading and it has really brought out a need to get writing. This journal basically embarrasses me as far as my writing goes, so I decided it was time for something new.

I made a new journal tonight on a whim. It will mostly be for very personal pieces of writing, memories, poems, even maybe a few fictional short stories depending on how creative I get. I'd love for some of you to maybe check it out as it grows and grows, and maybe give me some input. I've decided I'm not ready to let go of my creative writing ties.

so here it is,

my new journal: nueva_luna

(i am keeping hello_dear, as well! don't worry!)

"but no, i'm not a skeptic anymore..." [30 Aug 2007|03:26pm]
[ mood | optimistic ]

I never thought I'd be one of those people who try to make something work that is almost deemed to fail, but Kenny gives me the hope and strength to go with my heart instead of my mind. If anyone could do it, I really think we could, and I think that all of the hard work will be worth it when we are finally together. Kenny said something that made me want to do this. He said, "Just watching a movie in your dorm with you was way better than any night of parties down here." That kind of gave me the reassurance I needed to step into the unknown.

"...at last i see what all of this ridiculous hard work is for."

So this past week has been a complete blur and it's not even over yet. I graduated from high school on Thursday...but really it didn't feel like a big deal at all to me. Maybe it's because my parents have always insisted on getting a college education, so I'll probably hold a great deal of more respect for the final graduation ceremony...rather than the little high school one.

I have felt really really spoiled lately. As I write this, I am on my brand new laptop my parents got me for graduation. My grandmother also took us shopping and insisted on us getting whatever we wanted. Not to mention, all the cards full of money for doing something as simple as graduating high school. I don't know. I just feel very jaded to the situation.

Anyways, this weekend has been full of making appearances at numerous graduation parties. I'm having one tomorrow at Rio Vista Park with a moonbounce and sumo wrestling suits. Haha...I guess I'm reaching for that youth before I turn 18...If I know you, stop on by. It's going to be fun.

"so scared of getting older, i'm only good at being young." [15 May 2007|10:56pm]
[ mood | blah ]

I deleted my last entry. I re-read it and felt I wasn't being completely honest with myself.

I'm having a complete inner battle with the inevitable event of becoming a more mature, bitter, dry adult and the teenager I am now. I feel completely torn between the two. I know everyone feels this way at some point but, honestly..I feel like I'm mourning the kid I used to be. I feel like I'm losing a part of myself with this next stage of life.

I don't know. That's completely overdramatic, but that's how I feel...really. There aren't enough sad songs that could comfort this weird gutted feeling in my guts. I'm nervous, but mostly sad. Being an adult seems so less appealing. There's so much bullshit in this world, and I think adults get more caught up in it than kids do. I really think we're more true to ourselves than adults are. I think we still know how to go with our hearts and passion more than adults do. I really think my parents forgot how to do that. I love them, but I know they're not doing what they've always wanted to, and that's okay because they're providing for us and are happy...but I want more, and I'm scared I won't get it...like every other middle-classed American. . I've said this before, but I really am scared of becoming out of touch with my inner self and getting caught up with all of the cynacism and bitterness that comes with the experience of this ridiculous society.
